Welcome to the Lectures / Events page. Here we collect lectures, talks and events that deal with the topic of funding your artistic work. 

Talks as part of Rietveld Mulch Baking and Writing Workshop

On 8, 9 & 10 March we host a baking and writing workshop. Following the rhythms of baking bread, we playfully explore fund writing, cv compiling and biography building taking place between daily routines.  


Part 1: Talks   

For each session we invite a guest to share their funding routines for artistic practices. We dive into different aspects of writing to situate our practice within the cultural field and embody alternative perspectives to guide our goals.

Part 2: Folding rhythms, funding routines

Following the pace of bread, we are led through a series of exercises that explore structure within bread and text. Baking bread is a slow process of folding, resting and stretching. The moments in touch with the dough are short, just enough to guide the bread to a different stage of fermentation. In between folding, we have time to explore the structure of a text, building up toward a piece that holds itself and rises! At the end of each session we have a start of a structure in text and bread, feeding our minds and our bodies. Also each participant takes home a sourdough starter culture, to guide future folding rhythms and funding routines.  

Life After Sandberg

The symposium is an event, where the Master students can have discussions and conversations around the possibilities they have after they graduate. We will discuss legal procedures around visa applications and setting up your own freelance practice? How to organise yourselves either around an art space or by applying to residency programmes? And how to find money to fund your projects?
